Fright Nights for Honor Flight

My sister was very crafty and turned ordinary objects and dolls into scary props.

My great-niece, MaKynzee, took her role of zombie quite seriously.

During one of the weekends in October my sister turned her backyard into a Yard of Horrors, as part of the Fright Nights for Honor Flight.  Fourteen houses in town participated.  Spectators could drive by and see the scenes, then put in a donation to go towards Honor Flight.  My sister upped the ante by allowing people to walk through her yard for extra scares.  

Great-nephew, Harley, also played the role of a zombie.

I helped by dressing up as a zombie and walking the sidewalk, encouraging people to stop and enter.  For those who dared, they were greeted with scary scenes and props.  They were also chased by zombies and men with chainsaws.  There were quite a bit of screams!

Fright Nights for Honor Flight has become an annual event to raise money for Honor Flight.  The mission of Honor Flight is to transport America’s veterans to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials dedicated to honoring those who have served and sacrificed for our country. ​Our community is very dedicated to making sure our area veterans are able to participate.

My oldest daughter stopped by to see the scenery.

My favorite holiday + Getting to scare people + Helping a good cause = One ghoulishly fun night!

Sounds like a great cause. But, yikes! That's some scary stuff.
